Feedback form is now closed.
A morphing of technology, convenience and aesthetics results in a wide range of possibilities in the world of wearables and techno-fashion. According to a recent ABI Research report, wearable health and fitness devices are expected to hit 169.5 million in five years, a huge jump from the nearly 21 million devices sold in 2013. This hands on workshop will immerse participants into the world of programmable e-textiles through a simple development board. Join in collaborating to invent and create your own techno-fashion project. Dream up a GPS dog collar or make a dazzling tiara. The technology is as easy as connecting a battery, copy and paste the code. Leave with resources on how to make your idea a reality.
